Edward Rumble from Favart Road, Fulham raised over £1,000 for the aid agency CAFOD by taking part in last weekend’s Great South Run. He said he was particularly keen to support CAFOD as it is a great charity doing great work to fight poverty and injustice around the world.
Despite this being the first time that Edward had run the Great South Run, he is planning to run the London Marathon for CAFOD next year! He finished this run in just 1 hour 10 minutes.
The 38 year old self-employed fund manager said: “I just wanted to say thank you for all the support on Sunday both during and after the race. Looking out for the CAFOD banners when the pain was just starting to kick in at six miles really kept me going. Bring on the Virgin London Marathon next year”.
Edward joined 23,000 other runners along the 10 mile route around Southsea in Portsmouth on Sunday 24th October. He was inspired to take part in the Great South Run by his wife, who is a member of the CAFOD parish group. He ran with 30 other CAFOD supporters and has raised £1,000 so far.
